Description
One young woman is about to learn what tough love is all about. . . Thirty-three-year-old Kendra Richards just can't escape her reckless mother's endless requests for money that will never be repaid. Again and again, Kendra rescues Ginny despite the advice of her own father--a man who left Ginny and her cheating ways long ago. Kendra knows her mother is troubled--what she doesn't understand is why she can't tell her no--until she happens to meet psychologist Sam Hughes. . . Smart and sexy, Sam offers Kendra the answers--and the love and romance--she's been looking for. She's finally happy--until Ginny turns up for another handout. But this time the situation is desperate, and the stakes are higher than ever. Now, Kendra must finally decide if she's willing to lose everything for a woman who has nothing to give. . . Praise for the Novels of Gwynne Forster "Wise and wonderful as it points out, once again, the importance of honesty and appreciating what you have while you have it."-- Publishers Weekly on A Different Kind of Blues "Touching, thought-provoking, and will make you think twice about ever keeping secrets from the one you love." --Kimberla Lawson Roby, New York Times bestselling author on If You Walked in My Shoes
